National Geographic’s newest series, Photographer, follows the stories of some of the world’s most prolific photographers—including longtime Texas Monthly contributor Dan Winters.

Winters is one of the most celebrated feature photographers in Texas Monthly‘s 51-year history. His iconic, moody style first graced our cover back in 1998, and most recently in December 2022. Winters’ Central Texas studio was also the subject of a 2018 Style & Design article.

For each episode, a photographer is paired with one of today’s leading documentary filmmakers, resulting in a masterful visual storytelling experience.

The Dan Winters episode, “Life is Once. Forever.,” will premiere at South by Southwest on March 11 at the Rollins Studio Theatre at the Long Center. The series premieres on National Geographic on March 18 at 8 p.m. EDT and will be available to stream on March 19 on Disney+ and Hulu.

The series trailer was released earlier this month; you can watch the full trailer below.
